  1. Once Golden Bagel closes shop this, this stretch of White Oak will have quite a number of vacant store fronts. Hopefully there's a new spot that can anchor this corners soon. Anyone have news on the stalled construction near Coltivare (old Blue Line)? Haven't seen any progress there in quite a while. I know there was a lot of neighborhood pushback about a potential bar opening in one of the spots, but last I saw on that was back in January or so. They've also boarded up the tiny Mexican restaurant nearby where the trail crosses White Oak.
  2. Sharing an article below - looks to be the most promising news I've seen on the long-awaited connector between White Oak and MKT! Planned construction to start in September on the 850ft connector. Estimated completion isn't until Winter 2022 - so we still have quite a bit of time to wait. Beloved Heights-area trail will soon link to White Oak Bayou Greenway - CultureMap Houston
  3. Agreed @scarface....coming in from the north side the same holds true for Brava, it looks like an extension of Market Square. Fortunately, both buildings make a huge difference on the skyline viewed from the west side! Much more balance to the north of Chase Tower....
  4. It looks like this is the group involved in designing the project: http://www.tnassociatesinc.com/ I too am holding out for something more than Oscar's or the Fuel Depot just north across I-10, but based on some of the renderings for other projects on this page I'm keeping my expectations in check 🥴
  5. Sharing a time lapse of Brava and TX Tower going up since late 2019, viewed from Woodland Heights. Unfortunately the view of 609 Main gets blocked, but it's been fun to watch these two go up at the same time!
  6. It's still open until July 31st, Thursdays and Fridays from 8am-4pm. https://www.theleadernews.com/food_drink/food-briefs-cafeza-to-close-july-31/article_639b309e-d434-11eb-9a84-af8b1b37ae3b.html I haven't come across any listings - the bones are there hopefully someone can reuse for a similar purpose maybe...
  7. Disappointing to see another historic demo (per HCAD this structure goes back to 1926), though IMO this building has been in fairly rough shape for years. New permits suggest a 4K sq foot c-store + kitchen. Hoping that with Caveza closing across the street this can bring some new life into the area - and it's something more than the c-store (Oscar's) that is already just a block north of here...
  8. New signs showing 50% sold now. For a couple days the other week there was some machinery (?) on-site, but it doesn't look like anything was done to the property.
  9. Nothing too exciting to share - though this sign for a civil engineering firm popped up in the green space next to the old Luckys...perhaps that's a positive sign. Not sure what percentage of units sold they need to reach to move forward? Saw a sign that 30% were sold months ago and seems like a few more have gone pending since then.
  10. From White Oak Bayou; Texas Tower sticking out ever so slightly...
  11. Fun to watch both of these towers go up at the same time! Just a couple feet of 609 Main still in view :)
  12. Not sure if I'm counting right, but it looks like they might be building out the last occupied floor right now?
  13. Looks like it might be a furniture store...?
  14. Someone is breathing new life into this historic building on Byrne & Morrison streets in Woodland Hieghts. Looks like it might be a law firm moving in? Work has been ongoing for a couple weeks. Swamplot had a good article and link on this spot back in the day: http://swamplot.com/inside-the-masonic-lodge-now-selling-out-in-the-woodland-heights/2016-08-11/ Nice to see this building hopefully being put to good use once again!
